Valley of Tea is selling Pu-Erh loose leaf tea. Of all the finest teas from the Far East, I'd have to say Pu Erh tea is my favorite, although like finely aged single malt whiskey, it can be an acquired taste. Pu Erg comes from Yunnan district in South West China. Some Pu-erh teas are sold compressed into little bricks, or sometimes discs. This pu erh is not compressed, but is packaged loose. It is however aged. Like fine red wine, or certain types of cheese, aging this tea develops the flavor. When you find Pu Erh tea aged 9 years, as this tea is, you're usually looking at some highly valued tea. I find this tea to have a smooth, malty taste. This tea is known to reduce cholesterol levels, since it contains lovastatin in organic form. If you're a fan of Pu Erh tea, you won't be disappointed in the quality and flavor of the tea you will receive. If you've never tried it before, you'll be surprised that Tea can taste this complex and rich.
